Maintenance Timeline

Should you keep up with all the little nitpicky routine maintenance recommended for your vehicle? Absolutely yes! Many car owners end up unintentionally shortening the life of their vehicle by not doing preventative maintenance. You may think you're saving money, but you'll end up paying for more costly repairs down the road. Follow this schedule to keep up to speed on your car.

 

On a monthly basis, you should…

·         Have your car cleaned or clean it yourself

·         Check the wiper fluid

·         Check the condition and pressure of your tires

·         Inspect the exterior lights

·         Make sure no dashboard lights are on, especially the check engine light

 

Every 3 months or 3,000 miles, you should…

·         Do everything listed above

·         Change the oil and filter

·         Check the engine air filter

·         Have other fluids inspected, such as power steering or transmission fluid

·         Check belts and hoses for cracks, holes, or other damage

·         Make sure the connections on your battery are clean and tight

 

Every 6 months or 6,000 miles, you should…

·         Repeat all of the above

·         Assess the condition of your wiper blades and replace them if need be

 

Every 12 months or 12,000 miles, you should…

·         Do all of the above

·         Replace your coolant/antifreeze

·         Have your steering and suspension inspected by a professional

·         Polish your vehicle to prevent wear due to severe weather

 

Tires can last anywhere from five to ten years depending on road conditions, weather conditions, and driving habits. Proper inflation extends the life of tires.

 

Car batteries should be tested for performance and capacity annually after two years of car ownership. Batteries typically last about two to five years.

 

While many of these steps only tell you to have many systems, engine elements, or what-have-you inspected, if you find any damage or anything else necessitating a repair or fluid change, it's recommended that you schedule a service appointment as soon as possible to remedy the situation. Car issues that are left alone for extended periods of time may cause more damage.
